Checkout from multiple reps

Hello all,

I am new to using Subversion (current CVS user). I was very excited when I
read that you could have files from different positions in the repository in
one working directory (via the switch command). But in seems that the
checkout command stops me from doing that very thing. Let me explain my

I have many projects (Lib1, Lib2, Lib3, Prog1, Proj2). Each has a bin
directory and a source code directory. Since Prog1 depends on Lib1 and
Lib2, I check them out together and want to see all the source directories
and a bin dir that holds files from each project after the checkout. Same
for Proj2, but I only want Lib1 and Lib3. I have this in CVS by putting all
of the bin files in the same repository dir and using an rather large module
file. If I were able to put them in the repository by project and checkout
to a 'shared' bin file, things would be much easier to maintain and

Does anyone have suggestions of how to do this cleanly? My first thought
was to just checkout many projects at the same level (or use the ext-dep
property to build a module) and let each project add it's files to the bin
dir. It seems that this feature was excluded on purpose though (from
reading the bug log).

Thanks for any help,
